Default The Google Images game!

OK, how this game works is to search upon a common file name for pictures on Google Image search.

Many digital cameras automatically name pictures dsc####.jpg.

So for each post, you look at the file name used by the poster above you, add one to the four digit number, and search Google Images for that filename. Have a good look at what's out there. Note the size of the photo, try to avoid picking anything that's wider than 800 pixels or so. Anything that is more than about 1024 will cause those heinous side-scrolling bars and will make some people with slower connects go crazy. Google Images will have the image pop up when you've selected it, and will give you a link over on the right that says "Full-size image." Click on that and then copy (CTRL-Insert) the URL from the bar up at the top of the browser. Then click the image icon in your reply, and click Shift-Insert in the box that pops up.

Please don't post inappropriate photos here (Google will tend to filter by default) with nudity and other possibly objectionable things.

But DO try to find interesting, unusual and weird photos. Sometimes you'll find some amazing things out there. I tend to think of it as a bonus if there is anything tangentially related to the picture above without being too much like it.

dsc0001.jpg



The next appropriate response would come from a search on dsc0002.jpg, then dsc0003.jpg, and so on.

You'll find a LOT of historical reenactors, SCA types and LARPers who will post HUNDREDS of their pictures on message boards. Lots of business photos, vacation pics, and so on. Very often you will find some WEIRD and hard-to-explain pictures. Those are what makes the game fun. You'll also find some amazingly beautiful stuff as well. Avoid the ones with "naughty bits" in them, though feel to enjoy them privately all you want. *~[;-{p>

You've broken the rules with that one. I said, search on dsc0002.jpg, not dsc*.jpg. Dsc0002.jpg comes after dsc0001.jpg.

Anyone could go and look for the wildest and craziest picture on Google Images. The point of the game is to find a really good one with a file name that is one higher than the one that was previously posted.

Give the game a chance, it does lead to finding some funny pictures. And because a LOT of cameras name their pictures this way, what comes up in a search changes from day to day and hour to hour.

I've played this one before on another message board. If you give it a chance and follow the rules, it can be pretty amusing.

Rules are designed to be broken, and I did dsc*.jpg as a joke since it will use the wild card * and search ALL of the pictures with dsc in them.

Some people just can't take a joke Poobah
